Three wins and two losses as New Hampshire score fifteen runs, not that Ricky Romero needed them.  Dunedin and Auburn each earned ninth inning wins.  Syracuse futility streak has reached ten games. 

The minor league season has just over two weeks to go, a little more for Auburn, a little less for the GCL Jays.  If the season ended today three Jays affiliates would be in the playoffs.  Dunedin and Auburn lead their divisions by 2 and 3 games respectively.  The Midwest league has the most generous allocation of playoff spots, eight in total, and Lansing are looking good to be one of them.   New Hampshire are two games out of a playoff berth.   Syracuse and the GCL Jays have no hope of a playoff spot.

There were lots of close games on Saturday, Syracuse lost in the bottom of the ninth, New Hampshire lost in the bottom of the eleventh.  Dunedin won in ten and Lansing won in the ninth.  In the ninth inning of the Lansing game, with the scores tied, Dayton walked Travis Snider with a runner already on first moving the go-ahead run into scoring position.  That decision turned out to be a bad one.  The bottom two teams also won, Kevin Ahrens hit a three run home run in the GCL while Brett Cecil and Brad Mills pitched well for Auburn.

Torontos highest and lowest level affiliates lost, but the four teams in between all won Friday night.
